"There are several methods for installing SL 6.0, including from a full DVD distribution .iso file or over the network. The SL site also offers a live CD for testing purposes. This version works well if you want to give SL a spin using a virtualization tool like Virtualbox. You'll want to give the virtual machine at least 1GB of memory and a minimium disk size of 20 GB.

"The SL website provides an annotated installation guide complete with screenshots to guide you through the process. You'll find guides for both initial installation or an upgrade from a previous version. If you choose to do a network install, you may need to configure your network devices. Several screenshots detail what needs to be entered to get your computer connected to the network. If you choose the Live CD route, there's also an option to install permanently, should you choose to do so. The default user environment is based on GNOME, so if you're a KDE fan you'll have to install that manually."
